According to CNN, that fauna includes red squirrels and seals. However, if people wait long enough, they will see a dolphin.

Vanessa Branson, Richard’s sister, owns the neighboring island Eilean Shona. According to property manager Stephen McCluskey, the larger land mass is a popular resort for many celebrities. However, using binoculars to observe them is not recommended.

What type of individual would bid on/purchase this attractive, yet isolated, location? If someone only wants to buy the land, they could do a lot worse in terms of investment. According to Metro, Deer Island is for sale for the same amount as a London garage.

It had been in the hands of the Clanranald of Moidart for generations. According to Country Living, this is no longer the case. However, the historic dynasty dates back to the 14th century and is guaranteed to pique the interest of bettors.

According to, they “supported feudal justice” like other clans, while leaders “indulged in lawlessness, deceit, tyranny, revolt, barbarity, antagonism, robbery and loot, as well as sacrilege and murder.” Everything is extremely Game of Thrones!

The descendants of Deer Island are likely to have more modest goals in mind, albeit powered by a vast money balance.

CNN quotes McCluskey as saying that interested parties include “someone who wants somewhere to park their yacht” and “another person who wants to use it as a base for kayaking.”

Whoever wins the auction will have to start over. The island is devoid of homes and essential necessities such as electricity.

Potential islanders have until March 26th to make a decision. Future Property Auctions’ “Timed Online Auction” is now online, complete with its own countdown for added drama.
Owning an island may appear to be a privilege reserved for the rich. It goes without saying that maintaining and transforming a destination like Deer Island costs a lot of money.
